In this inspiring statement on achieving optimum health, Dr. Diamond suggests the term enhancement rather than the more usual remedy is the best way to conceptualize the application of his work. Remedy implies merely repairing, ie, overcoming a problem to return to a prior state of good health, and nothing more. Enhancement, however, suggests much more: a problem is not just neutralized, but positively transformed into a virtue. Such enhancers therefore have an essential function in helping to achieve full health, and in this talk he focuses on two: creativity, especially music; and particular herbs which “resonate” with specific acupuncture meridian points, and which, when taken, thus greatly raise the Life Energy of the student.
